I have included a pattern of a bare tree for this project, “Falling Leaves and Spooks.” We start out with a black construction paper background and glue on the bare tree. Then the fun begins with tearing little pieces of colored paper scraps for the leaves. Any other spooky thing, an owl or ghost, can be added. The pattern and directions for “Falling Leaves and Spooks” are found in the 2nd Grade Projects Gallery in the sidebar.
Happy New Year, and congratulations! I wanted to let you know that you made it onto our list of The Top 100 Kids' Craft Ideas of 2014.
